About the Artist

Laishram Meena has been obsessed with portraits as a subject matter to speak a nostalgic relationship with her lived atmosphere. The color vibrancy and also the design used to enliven a surface have been her keen interest in space. Her works of female portraits depict a deep view of a world un-spoilt by consumerism. Her liking for visual aspect and embellishment vis-à-vis, the mundane and easy, exudes a womanly pleasure.

Her delicate, ethereal, and fragile aesthetics, the sensuousness of color, and sinuous line-drawing communicate directly to the viewer. “Playful” yet “morose”; “Simplified” yet “impenetrable”; “Docile” yet “challenging” -it is this quality of “in-betweenness”, refusing to settle meekly into a labeled category that makes her work really engaging.
